Yes, you can convert Word files to Pdf file format with the help of Adobe Reader.

HI Trailhead,
As per the posts from the past like

 Blob.toPDF() has several bugs and CSS is not respected when using it and looks like there is no workaround for it too. 

Copying text from the above link:
"There is no way around the CSS 3 issue until SF updates the render engine they use. Rendering a PDF is like printing a file to a Postscript Printer. If you don't have the right "drivers", it's not going to print anything but garbage. At present, SF uses the Flying Saucer Render engine. Until it gets updated or they choose another one, nothing you can do. "

If this information helps, please mark the answer as best.Thank you
